TopoSynth: Incorporating Cosm

I’ve finally completed all of the basic topological operations for TopoSynth and am now moving on to treating the dynamics of the system.  This last rule involved figuring out how to connect two extended vertices together when they collide. For … Continue reading

TopoSynth: Topological Structure

DLFL Background As I had mentioned in the last post, the topological inspiration for TopoSynth is derived from TopMod and particularly the doubly-linked face list (DLFL) data structure.  The DLFL makes it particularly straightforward to always maintain a 2-manifold mesh … Continue reading

TopoSynth

Ever since I found out about the excellent Structure Synth program, I wondered what it would be like to apply the same concept to topological operations.  Structure Synth works by writing rules that describe a pattern of transformations.  The transformations … Continue reading
